Signature massage is a full body relaxation massage, which completely done on all ten meridian lines or ten human bodily systems including reproductive and excretory system, to suit individual needs and life force energy flow.
My signature massage is not only intend to deal with physical nature only, but solely treat all aspects of individual needs, base on knowledge and know how I have gained through out my years of practicing, being a licensed massage therapist who had psychology background, studied about human dynamic, behavior patterns, perception, human relationships, belief system, cultures and so on.
This practice aim to promote physical and mental well-being, raising individual awareness upon human dynamic and relationship issue which caused by physical nature, hormone deficit, blood circulation and energy blockage along whole bodily energy paths.
This practice could help diminish psychological and emotional numbness, physical fatigues, due to family duties and life circumstances which suppressing her/his sense of individuality, putting a man and woman in touch with less familiar aspects of their being.
This full body relaxation massage is not a simple hands-on practice where it does not required physiological, anatomical and psychological knowledge on some level. The practitioner must have some ground knowledge and acknowledgement, fully self-conscious, while practicing, observing life force energy flow through out the session.
A master once said
" Knowledge is expensive but not knowing is more expensive than the knowledge "
That is why some individual are willing to pay 400-500 euro per hour with good massage therapist. Because they know knowledge is power, that they are not willing to trade what they have had with therapists who operate from unconscious place, not knowing what they are practicing could ruin one's life and opportunity to live a happy life, which very unfortunate.
Some individuals know it costs a lot more when they are not mindful on their decision making, choices and action. While many people do not care or realized that risk is co-exist with unconscious mind.
Some know what worth the risk. What's not.
Oxytocin hormone and relaxation massage
Oxytocin or the so-called "love hormone" is being increasingly shown to trigger wide variety of physical and psychological effects in both women and men.
The hormone's influence on our behavior and physiology originates in the brain, where it's produced by a structure called the hypothalamus, then transfers to the pituitary gland which releases into the bloodstream.
Like antennas picking up a signal, oxytocin receptors are found on cells throughout the body. Levels of the hormone tend to be higher during both stressful and socially bonding experiences, according to the American Psychological Association.
"It's like a hormone of attachment, you might say," said Carol Rinkleib Ellison, a clinical psychologist in private practice in Loomis, California and former assistant clinical psychiatry professor at the University of California, San Francisco. "It creates feelings of calm and closeness." Though scientists have long known about oxytocin's role in breastfeeding and childbirth, "We're just learning more about it now. Ellison said.
A stream of studies in the last decade have focused on oxytocin's effects on body and mind. Here's a look at what we've learned.
Oxytocin promotes attachment
Pregnant women with higher levels of oxytocin during their first trimester bonded more strongly with their babies after they were born, according to a 2007 study in the journal Psychological Science. And compared with other women, women with higher levels throughout their pregnancy and in the first month after birth reported engaging in more behaviors such as singing, feeding and bathing their infants in specific ways that promoted an exclusive relationship between the two, the study found.
Oxytocin solidifies relationships
Comparing urine levels of oxytocin and a related hormone called vasopressin in biological and adoptive children who lived in Russian and Romanian orphanages, researchers found that oxytocin rose in biological children after having contact with their mothers. The study, published in 2005 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, showed that oxytocin levels remained static in the adoptive children in the same situation, suggesting a physiological basis for why some adoptive children have difficulty forming secure relationships.
Oxytocin eases stress
Research done on prairie voles showed that those separated from their siblings exhibited signs of anxiety, stress and depression that abated after they were injected with oxytocin. The study, presented at a 2007 meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, indicated the hormone's effects were more evident under stressful situations.
Oxytocin crystallizes emotional memories
A November study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences supported researchers' theory that oxytocin would amplify men's early memories of their mothers. In a group of 31 men, those who inhaled a synthetic version of the hormone found the hormone intensified fond memories of their mothers if their relationships had been positive. Those whose ties with their mom's had frayed downgraded their opinions after inhaling oxytocin, the study showed.
Oxytocin facilitates childbirth and breastfeeding
In its best understood role, oxytocin is released in large amounts during labor, intensifying the uterine contractions that open the cervix and allow the baby to pass through the birth canal. Physicians have been using synthetic oxytocin, also known by its brand name Pitocin, to induce or augment labor since the early 1900s. After birth, the hormone continues to stimulate uterine contractions that discourage hemorrhaging, and more is released when the nipples are stimulated during suckling, promoting the letdown of milk into the nipples.
Oxytocin boosts sexual arousal
Spontaneous erections in rats were observed after oxytocin was injected into their cerebrospinal fluid in a 2001 study in the journal Physiological Review. And a cocktail of brain chemicals that includes oxytocin is released in men during ejaculation. These chemicals can intensify bonding between sexual partners, though, Ellison noted, "it isn't the same for everyone."
"I think there is a variability," said Ellison, who also teaches sexuality classes to health professionals. "For people who can really get into the sensualness of hugging and cuddling, that is the hormone released in this process. For people who don't get into it, maybe they're not releasing the oxytocin. It may be a circular thing."
Oxytocin reduces drug cravings
According to a 1999 article in the journal Progress in Brain Research, some studies indicate that oxytocin inhibits tolerance to addictive drugs, including opiates, cocaine and alcohol , and reduces withdrawal symptoms. "It's an antidote to craving," Ellison explained. "That craving (for drugs), that hunger, is probably eased with this hormone. It's involved with the satisfaction of hunger."
Oxytocin improves social skills
A February study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed that inhaling oxytocin significantly improved the ability of people with autism to interact with others. Previous studies indicated natural oxytocin levels were lower in those with autism, a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties in communication and social relationships. Oxytocin also reduced autistic individuals' fear of others, researchers said.
Oxytocin triggers protective instincts
A June study in the journal Science suggested oxytocin triggers defensive aggression against outsiders who might threaten someone's social group, such as in soldiers who defend their comrades. Prior animal studies had shown that the hormone promotes protectionist behavior, but this research was the first to demonstrate a similar effect in humans.
